Dear God, your creation sings to me quietly: the birds, the still, clear air, the mist on the grass. I struggle to list what I am grateful for, yet it is all around me for me to see, staring back at me.

Lord, let my attitude be right. You give me the gift of this day; let me unwrap it with gratitude. Let me search for your guidance in every moment. Direct my feet, guide my hands, control my words – that I may be your instrument today.

These things of beauty I see all around me – I am one of them. I am part of your creation. Let me be a demonstration of your love for some other soul who may be looking at this world through eyes of sorrow or doubt. Grant me willingness to be your beacon today.

(Letter #942)
